Buzzband: Los Campesinos! July 4, 2006

Posted by alexd in Buzz band, Music.

Don’t be deceived by their name. Los Campesinos are a welsh band. And are the latest in a line of blog buzz bands, following in the roots of Beirut and Tapes ‘n’ Tapes. They describe themselves as such:

Hold on now youngster, this is a good thing to look into the maw of the void, but let’s not be excessive, there is still Los Campesinos!. And one day you will wake in the middle of the night and the water on your face will not be from the cold sweat that your dreams of impending doom have produced but from tears of joy squeezed out by a lingering melody, a droning violin, a haunting mantra or a panic attack brought on by a song so tight and serene and messy and polished and dense that it suffocates you like the fumes of the paint that made your favourite album covers. Actually, it’s just pop music.

In short just imagine (Architects in Helsinki x Charlotte Church)/ LCD Soundsystem and you get half way there.
